“Elective Abroad is a highly educative program for all medical students. If you have special interests in fields like Obstetrics/gyn, general surgery, and tropical medicine, this is a very good program. The experience I had in Mombasa has been memorable, and I highly recommend ElectiveAbroad to anyone considering applying.”
“I want to say I think it is a fantastic program... I did the senior program so what I wanted out of an African elective program was plenty of hands-on experience and the opportunity to see tropical/unusual diseases we would not see in the UK. And I got both of these. Coast is a brilliant hospital to be placed at. It probably helps that it is a teaching hospital, so many Kenyan students were there too, but it means you get taught by knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and relevant staff.”
